|have been adding bird-like critters to the small pillows|
|this one has been sold|
|prepping for the coming week, as I'll be in Greece and hope to make more small pillows in the sun|
|now one of them looks something like this and yes either one or the other is upside down, because it will be sewn double into a small pillow;is the birdy sad or what?|
|our roads our being asphalted yet again, wind and sand conspired together and made a heart|
|Spring and flowers, oh what a delight!|
|here's Django pretending to always use the path, whereas he much prefers to wander through the flower bed, having long ago created a path ánd a spot to lie in the sun in the midst of said flower bed, whilst at the same time guarding the house as he can keep an eye on the gate|
|technology in the kitchen: a tap with running cold, hot and boiling water! installed ourselves last weekend; and as one does when moving stuff about I checked out the cacti in the windowsill and discovered these two tiny snails, aaahhhh|
|fooling around with two sides for a small pillow, printed a small tree onto the blue silk, noticed a scrap of cotton with many moons and said to self 'what if I print the tree over the moon' and so it happened:|
|mother and daughter|
|we stayed with my auntie M. where I recognize several pieces, love how she framed this one with the light shining through|
|my sister and I slept in my aunt's bed, at first we were accompanied by Fido the dog; once he realised his mistake he pottered on down stairs to lay by his mistresses's side|
we did not merely visit relatives, for the benefit of our cultural education we (re)visited Charlottenborg, the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts * where I spent a magical Summer back in 1987 painting huge canvases tacked onto the floor; many hours were whiled away in the small garden to the back, we, i.e. a couple of students, had a key to the back door hidden in the wall, so we were able to wander in and out all hours of the night & day
back to 2017: in the Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition * my spirits were uplifted by this grand old lady, still going strong at age 90!
